On the official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki, Nanatsu no Taizai, it was announced that the premiere of the fourth season, titled Nanatsu no Taizai: Fundo no Shinpan, will be delayed.

The release was scheduled for the month of October this year, however, due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic on production, the decision was made to delay it. The new release date will be announced as soon as it is decided.

Suzuki started publishing the manga in the magazine Weekly Shonen Magazine from the publisher Kodansha in October 2012 and completed it in March 2020, with a total of 41 compilation volumes.

The play has inspired other spin-off manga and animations. The anime's first season featured 24 episodes, produced by the studios. A-1 Pictures, under the direction of Tensai Okamura and scripts written by Shoutarou Suga, and released in October 2014. A second season of 24 episodes produced by the same studios, under the direction of Takeshi Furuta and scripts written by Takao Yoshioka, premiered in January 2018.

However, from the third season there was a change in the animation studio. This season had 24 episodes and was produced by Studio Deen, under the direction of Susumu Nishizawa and scripts written by Rintarou Ikeda, and premiered in October 2019. A false rumor claims that the new season will have studios J.C. Staff in animation, but was denied shortly after.

Synopsis of Nanatsu no Taizai

The Seven Deadly Sins are a group of knights from the Kingdom of Britannia who disbanded ten years ago on charges of treason and of having carried out a coup against the Kingdom of Lyons and its Holy Knights.

The third princess of Liones, Elizabeth Liones, meets the leader of the Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas, and asks for his help in rescuing the honor of the Sacred Knights, who are being manipulated by a demonic entity. Meliodas will then begin to reunite his companions again, while multiple threats will try to destroy peace every time they get it.
